If you are a gun owner in Florida, it is important to know your rights and how to own guns legally according to state and federal law. The Second Amendment declares that the right of all citizens of the United States to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed.
The Florida Constitution states: “The right of the people to keep and bear arms in defense of themselves and of the lawful authority of the state shall not be infringed, except that the manner of bearing arms may be regulated by law.”
All citizens must comply with national and state regulations regarding the ownership of guns. Illegal ownership or use of a gun could have serious consequences.
Florida NFA Gun Trusts | NFA Gun Trusts In Florida
Florida residents have the additional legal right to own or sell Class III firearms. Class III firearms are regulated by the National Firearms Act (NFA) and include:
- Short Barreled Rifles (SBR)
- Short Barreled Shotguns (SBS)
- Destructive Devices (DD)
- Machine Guns
- And any other firearm (AOW)
All Florida residents must comply with NFA regulations and laws for ownership, which includes the purchase of the firearm through a licensed Class III Dealer. Florida residents can own class III firearms as a corporation, individual, or through a Florida NFA GunTrust.
We recommend class III firearm owners take advantage of the additional legal protection of a Florida NFA Gun Trust. Owning a class III firearm through a trust ensures Florida residents can safely and legally own a class III firearm while providing the additional benefits of:
Florida NFA Gun Trust: Faster approval
Individual ownership requires the mailing of fingerprints to the Federal Bureau of Investigation and the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives. With a Florida NFA Gun Trust, fingerprinting is not required.
Florida NFA Gun Trust: Additional privacy
Joining a gun trust means you do not have to reveal your ownership of a class III firearm to everyone.
Florida NFA Gun Trust: Family protection
A Florida NFA Gun Trust protects your loved ones and allows the storage of the guns in the house even while you are away.
Florida NFA Gun Trust: Multiple owners
A Florida NFA Gun Trust allows several individuals to share use and ownership of a single firearm.
Florida NFA Gun Trust: Chief LEO approval not needed
If your Chief Law Enforcement Officer is reluctant to allow the ownership of a class III firearm, using a NFA Gun Trust means the Chief LEO does not have to approve the application.
Call or email us today for more information about Florida NFA Gun Trusts. A special customized NFA trust provides the highest level of protection. A general gun trust will not provide the necessary legal protection for class III firearms and can leave your family and loved ones in violation of federal law.
